Yunwen Chen, recently graduated from the New England Conservatory, holds a Master’s Degree and Graduate Diploma under the guidance of Paul Katz.  Born in Nanjing, China, she is the first musician in the family and her passion for music led her to study in the U.S. at age 16. She won awards in Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and NEC Tecchler-Forster Cello Competition. Two of her chamber music groups, trio “Gruppetto” and trio “Sol” were selected as NEC Honors Ensembles and gave recitals in Jordan Hall.
 This past summer, Yunwen returned to the Yellow Barn festival where she collaborated with musicians from around the globe, including Donald Weilerstein, Katherine Murdock, Anthony Marwood, and Stephen Stirling. 
Yunwen is currently playing a cello made by Carlo Ferdinando Landolfi in the year 1771.

True to its Historic Roots

Grace Note Farm, also known as the Benjamin Smith homestead farm c. 1730, is nestled in the northwest corner of Rhode Island adjacent to the George Washington Management area.

Catering to Equestrians

Riders can enjoy over six hours of riding on wide, mostly sandy trails that connect to Connecticut and Massachusetts. Trails wind through a covered bridge, hemlock grove and pass picturesque lakes and streams. You can ride alone on the well marked trails, or join a guide. Over 25 miles are safe for carriages.

Guests bring their own horses and can stay one or more nights on their own or in groups of up to 8 people. The stalls are airy and there is plenty of turnout in the rolling pastures or corrals surrounding the farm. Grace Note Farm welcomes group rides, and offers breakfast or lunch. The farm hosts parties for horse enthusiasts.

Activities in CT, MA, and RI are Near

Nearby activities include massage therapy for horse and rider, and private or group lessons in the outdoor ring. Mountain biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, canoeing, cross-country skiing are all permitted in the adjacent state park. Enjoy visits to Southwick Zoo (Mendon, Ma); Worcester Art Museum (Worcester, Ma); and the over thirty antique stores in Putnam, CT.
